67/5 Lorne Street represents an ideal home for first-time buyers, city professionals, small families, and buy-to-let investors alike.
Accessed by a secure communal entrance and stairwell, the flat’s front door opens into a welcoming hall with a convenient cloak cupboard before leading into the living/dining room. Here, a generous footprint is brightly illuminated in natural light from a south-facing window. The room provides deep storage, a display cupboard, and ample proportions for comfy lounge and dining furniture. A sliding door leads into the neighbouring kitchen, which is enveloped in olive-toned tiling and fitted with timber-fronted cabinets and complementary worktops. The cleverly designed space incorporates appliances. The two double bedrooms are on the opposite side of the hall. The first bedroom, with a shelved recess and period cornicing, is displayed in pale straw tones with soft carpeting, whilst the second bedroom is presented with varnished floorboards and soothing sky-blue décor. A handy box room, with a bespoke cabin bed, offers excellent versatility for creative use. Finally, a bright three-piece bathroom with classic tongue and groove panelling completes the home. An efficient gas central heating system and double-glazed windows ensure year-round comfort.
Outside, there is a delightful garden for communal use and ample, unrestricted on-street parking.
